Here at Jewel-Osco, we like to recognize our hardworking associates! Every month, we will have a Tuesday Toast, spotlighting one of these great employees!  We wanted to honor someone who is not only a hard working Jewel-Osco employee, but also has served our country!  David served 6 years in the Marine Corp.

This month, we are toasting David Gaura, an Assistant Store Director at our Cary, IL store. David started with us in 2007 and has worked his way up the Jewel ladder. David started as a part-time clerk and became a business intern in 2013 and 2014.  He became a Store Manager Trainee in 2015 and in less than a year, became an Assistant Store Director.

David attended Northern Illinois University.

He quotes “Its a great place to shop, its a great place to work and if you work hard enough it can support you.” 

Check back every month to see who we’re toasting to! Cheers to David and Happy Veterans Day to all of the Veterans out there!
